OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) – Oklahoma City police do not plan to seek charges against an attorney who they say fatally shot his client in self-defense.

Police spokeswoman Jennifer Wardlow said Monday that officers are continuing to investigate the Friday shooting at attorney Jay Silvernail’s home in Oklahoma City.

Silvernail shot 54-year-old client David Scott Smith, who was at Silvernail’s home to pick up unspecified items. Police say Smith became upset with Silvernail and attacked him before the shooting.

Smith died at the scene.

Wardlow says it’s unclear why the men fought. The investigation into the shooting is ongoing.

No other injuries were reported.
